Overview

The mmWave microcontroller (MCU) plus software development kit (SDK) is a collection of software packages that enable application evaluation and development on TI mmWave sensors. This tool includes the MMWAVE-MCUPLUS-SDK and companion packages to support your design needs.

MMWAVE-MCUPLUS-SDK is a unified software platform for the mmWave sensing portfolio, providing easy setup and fast out-of-the-box access to evaluation and development. MMWAVE-MCUPLUS-SDK is the second-generation foundational software package required for customer application development and includes building blocks, demonstrations and examples.

Demonstration applications for automotive include those tailored to front long-range radar, ultra-short-range radar, in-cabin occupant sensing and more.

Features
  • Building blocks
    • Full driver availability (integrated MCU_PLUS_SDK driver packages)
    • Layered approach to programming analog front end (AFE)
    • Catalog of mmWave algorithms optimized for C66x digital signal processors (DSPs)
  • FreeRTOS™ and no-RTOS support on Arm® Cortex®-R5F processor
  • FreeRTOS and no-RTOS support on C66x DSP
  • Demonstrations and examples
    • FreeRTOS-based demos
    • Out-of-box demo with easy configurability via TI cloud-based GUI
    • Representation of "point cloud" and benchmarking data from demo via GUI
    • Profiles tuned to common end-user scenarios, such as range, range resolution, velocity and velocity resolution
  • Tools
    • Code Composer Studio™ integrated development environment (IDE) (CCSTUDIO)
    • Sysconfig for the system code generation
